Former WWE Raw Women’s Champion Sasha Banks was recently a guest on Conversations with Maria Menounos where she talked about various topics including the news that Roman Reigns’ Leukemia has returned after 11 years and him having to give up the Universal Title. Here is what she had to say (H/T to IwNerd):
“I didn’t know, and I don’t want to cry ’cause he’s so…he’s very special, and I’m still shaken from that news.I remember getting ready for my match and walking backstage and everyone just stopped and was watching some kind of screen of any sort that they could see, and I’m like ‘what’s going on? what-what did he just tell us?’
“Everyone found out with that promo, the whole world. No-one backstage knew. I ran to gorrilla ’cause I’m like- he is the strongest, most amazing man I’ve ever met. He’s taught me so much since I’ve been on Raw. Just to see the outreach on Twitter too of people just wishing him well, knowing that people are gonna pray for him, I know he is going to get through this because he is so strong.
“To know he has been battling with this and didn’t tell a soul and he is legit. He is a leader, he is everyone- everyone looks up to him. There’s no bad word[s] that anybody can say about him, because he is the hardest working person I’ve ever met, and I wish him all the best, and I know he’s gonna overcome this.”
